Presumably much to the chagrin of the fascist members of congress and faux journalists who attacked or questioned the reporting of the Snowden/NSA story as criminal, traitorous or even terrorist, the Pulitzer Prize has been awarded to those reporting organizations that broke and continued to tell the story-- the Pulitzer for Public Service. 

You might consider it a big "f*ck you" to Barack Obama, the NSA, Joe Biden, John McCain, David Gregory, Shelby Chambliss and all the other right and left wing media, including those at MSNBC who kiss Democrat ass, who slandered and accused heroic journalists Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras,  Ewen MacAskill and Barton Gellman (also Polk Award winners) of being criminals, traitors, terrorists and the like. 

Here's the announcement from Pulitzer:

For a distinguished example of meritorious public service by a newspaper or news site through the use of its journalistic resources, including the use of stories, editorials, cartoons, photographs, graphics, videos, databases, multimedia or interactive presentations or other visual material, a gold medal.

Awarded to The Washington Post for its revelation of widespread secret surveillance by the National Security Agency, marked by authoritative and insightful reports that helped the public understand how the disclosures fit into the larger framework of national security.

and

Awarded to The Guardian US for its revelation of widespread secret surveillance by the National Security Agency, helping through aggressive reporting to spark a debate about the relationship between the government and the public over issues of security and privacy.

Finalists

Also nominated as a finalist in this category was Newsday, Long Island, N.Y., for its use of in-depth reporting and digital tools to expose shootings, beatings and other concealed misconduct by some Long Island police officers, leading to the formation of a grand jury and an official review of police accountability.


And here's a link to the full list of Pulitzer Prize Winners and Nominees. 

This is a sweet day for journalism and justices. Let's hope the highly unlikely happens and it causes Barack Obama, the worst enemy of the free press and worst attacker of whistleblowers in American history to reconsider. 



 

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
